Mr Play Features & Offer - October 2021
Mr Play provide a fairly new bookmaking option for UK players to get on board with which means it seems inevitable they will attract a lot of bettors looking for a new bookmaking experience. With an array of sports and markets including favourites like football and tennis among many other more niche sports, people best get used to seeing the eye-catching moustache more often as this seems to be a signalling of the new bookmaker's intent.
Mr Play offer a £10 bet token as their welcome offer for new customers that are looking to sign up with the bookie. If you want to get involved with this offer when signing up you simply need to opt-into the offer and deposit a minimum of £10 or more.
Then you must place a first bet of £10 at minimum odds of 2.00 (1/1) or more on sport. You will then be awarded with one bet token of £10. This token must be used on sports, while the minimum odds are set at 1.80 (4/5) or higher for the coupon that the bet token can be used with.
What really helps Mr Play's welcome offer to stand out is the fact that the winnings from the bonus token does not need to be wagered, meaning that you can get your hands on your winnings immediately as they can withdrawn straight away. However, you should be aware that the bet token stake amount will not be included in any winnings.
Only singles and straight accumulators will be eligible to qualify for the bet token offer while system bets like Yankee, Trixie, and Lucky Bet will not qualify. Cash out bets also do not count towards any qualifying requirements needed for the bet token offer while bet tokens are not eligible for cash out.
The bet token will expire after 14 days so ensure you are fully aware of this time restraint when opting into the welcome offer.
Sports & Markets
Mr Play offer an impressive range of sports and markets, with the bookie offering over 24 sports for their customers. These range from sports like tennis and cricket to futsal and snooker, with Mr Play providing pretty much everything you could possibly want sports-wise.
As with most other bookies, football is the big one for Mr Play. Leagues like the Premier League, Championship and La Liga all feature prominently on site, while the bookie does not slack off when it comes to offering markets for the smaller leagues. Leagues from Russia, Denmark, Turkey, Switzerland and Estonia are all provided for, among many others. The choice of what football you can bet on really is very impressive with Mr Play.
The In-Play section of the site is very easy to find. The 'In-Play Betting' tab at the top left of the page will take you to a page where the clickable options at the top including sports, overview, event view and In-Play schedule. The overview section details all of the sports that are currently available to bet on In-Play. The In-Play Schedule meanwhile will reveal all of the upcoming events coming up over the next seven days. You can therefore filter through upcoming events by day through this drop down bar while you can do the same by filtering to the sports you want to bet on.
The In-Play markets themselves are very extensive and impressive. For a Lithuanian Cup game in football, Mr Play offer over 70 In-Play markets. These include first and last to score, double chance, Asian handicap, exact score and many more. Mr Play also provide a graphic of the game with the scoreboard and the time at the top of the In-Play page for football too making for quite an immersive experience while the inclusion of niche betting markets like Asian handicap is a feature that all the top bookmakers should have.
Away from football, Mr Play offer a good range of Esports for you to bet on. Games like CS:GO, League of Legends, Dota 2 and Rainbow Six all feature although there is currently no way to bet In-Play on these matches once they they have begun. Perhaps as Esports continue to gain popularity, this feature and more games will be added.
Not many new betting sites decide to launch with horse racing and greyhound racing as part of their sportsbook as they instead decide to focus on football and other sports. However, Mr Play have decide to incorporate both horse racing and greyhound racing which is ideal for bettors on the sport and shows the intent of Mr Play who clearly want to push for a spot with the big boys of betting by including the biggest sports to bet on.
Best Odds Guaranteed
Despite the fact that it is impressive when any newer bookmaker offers horse racing and greyhound racing,, it is worth bearing in mind the fact that Mr Play do not offer a Best Odds Guarantee at this time. The best odds guarantee works by giving you the best possible odds that bookmaker is able to give if your horse wins. For example, if you took a price on a horse at 3/1 but the Starting Price (SP) is 5/1 and that horse wins, you will be paid out at the higher price. The fact Mr Play does not offer this feature is disappointing though and something they need to rectify if they want to attract more bettors.
Disappointingly, Live Streaming is not offered by Mr Play. As a new bookmaker it is not always immediately possible to offer a streaming of events while even some more established bookies only offer a stream for a small number of sports. For bettors that are only looking to make pre-match bets and do not want to watch a stream then Mr Play provide everything you need, but if you want to watch and bet on the match as it unfolds then Mr Play's lack of a streaming option is disappointing.
Cash out is offered alongside partial cash out which is usually available until the latter-stages of most matches, while players can also utilise Mr Play's Pulse Bet and Fast Markets when looking to place instant bets. The bet acceptance currently stands at 4-5 seconds.
The site itself is optimised for mobile play with this by far and away the most popular method for punters to place bets these days, while there is also a website version of the site too. Negatively, there is no mobile-app for the bookie meaning Android and Apple users are left unable to download a Mr Play verified app.
You can also make the most out of Mr Play's PlayBoost. This is an acca boost which can improve your winnings by up to 77%. To get involved with this you must choose at least four pre-match sports selections, place a 4-fold or acca bet with minimum odds of 1.2 (1/5) and then your winnings can be boosted by up to 77% if your acca wins. In order to get this 77% boost you will need to place a 15-fold while the lowest boost of 4% is applied to 4-fold accas with the boost increasing as you add more legs to your acca.
What is quite surprising is the fact that Mr Play do not currently offer 24/7 customer service. Their customer support is available between 06:00 GMT to 23:00 GMT and they are reachable via phone, email and live chat.
While Mr Play do lack a few important features that help to take a bookmaker to the next level, they are not a bookie that should be ignored. A very strong offering of sports and markets along with good offers and odds make them a very favourable operator to sign up with. However, if you simply have to have features like live streaming, best odds guaranteed, request a bet and others then Mr Play is probably not for you. If you are looking for a good newer bookmaker that offers a lot of sports and good value offers though, Mr Play may be the one for you.
